When it comes to first aid classes in Wilmington, the Red Cross has a wide range of options – including in-person, online and blended Simulation Learning classes, which combine online coursework with an in-person skills session. For those who learn best in a traditional classroom setting, would like to have the opportunity to discuss topics with their instructor and their classmates, and generally learn better in a focused environment, our in-person classes are the best solution. Not only do they offer ample time for discussion, but during the skills session, you'll get personalized attention from your instructor who can help you perfect your skills and gain the confidence necessary for delivering care.
